BIOL 4250 - Developmental Biology


Model systems provide the experimental basis for understanding the conserved principles of developmental biology. This class will cover fundamental topics including axis specification, pattern formation, cell fate and determination, cell differentiation, senescence, and apoptosis.  Emphasis will be placed on integrating gene function and cell behavior with development. Model systems include vertebrates (e.g. frog and chick) and genetically tractable invertebrates (e.g. fruitflies and roundworms). May be used to fulfill the Culminating Experience requirement in Biology.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: BIOL 2120, BIOL 2500.

When Offered: Spring term annually.



Credit Hours: 4
